Discover subtle luxury with our Birch Chunky Hoops - a playful twist on traditional hoops made from hand-cut birch bark cast into luxurious 14k gold. Not quite hoops, not quite dangles, these unique earrings are suitable for pierced ears and will become your new everyday go-tos!

Materials

First, we hand-cut pieces of birch bark in our GA studio. We then coat the birch in a thin wax. The wax is cast into solid 14k yellow gold using the lost wax casting method and hammered into shape.

The lost wax casting method is a process where wax models are created and put into a vat of investment. The best way to explain investment is to akin it to concrete; both begin as a powder, water is added so is takes the form of a liquid. After some time, the liquid hardens, and in speaking about investment, the hardened investment hardens around the wax model. The wax-in-investment vat is put into an oven where the wax is melted out, and a cavity in the shape of the model remains. Molten metal is poured into the cavity, and your jewelry comes out! A quick quench, cleaning, and polish, and it's ready to love and wear for generations.
